Episode 8: The Hanging of Mewa Singh
Aug 16 17
When do people of colour enter the archive? "When we’re buying property or breaking the law." In 1914, Mewa Singh shot William C. Hopkinson at the Provincial Courthouse of British Columbia. He turned himself in to the police, and was hanged for the murder. His crime gives him a place in the official archive, but his name and spirit reverberate across Metro Vancouver in gurdwaras and homes, and across the halls of the old courthouse, now the Vancouver Art Gallery. This is his story.
